    The way X #14 ends really was a powerful statement made by X, from him to everyone else. You reach that point and can't help but see how easy it is for the tides to shift in another's favor. If you were to imagine a fight for a city on the brink of collapse, this is certainly how I would envision it. That and having a one man army like X leading the charge in Arcadia's defense.

    Although we've come to expect adrenaline-pumping, high-octane issues month after month from this book, I feel like the writing is strong enough that I never know what's going to happen next. Although X does his best to clean up the streets, each visit to Arcadia is more corrupt, bloody, and dark than the last-and I wouldn't have it any other way. Read Full Review

    This week is a slower paced issue that continues to set the stage for a grand finale. Whether that finale is satisfying or not remains to be seen, but I'm hopefully this is just a momentarily lull for X and won't be the norm going forward. X #14 isn't in itself all that exciting but the little threads it's laying down for the future are promising. Read Full Review

    Overall I didn't hate X #14, I just didn't think it was all that amazing. More than anything X feels like it has 1 too many influences over what it is which leaves it without enough of a truly dominant aesthetic or style. It doesn't feel like it has a true genre even within the subgenres and focuses of superhero comics, so what you're left with though an overall good superhero action story ends up feeling a little empty and ambitionless, however if you liked what I described here and think this sounds awesome this is a very good issue to jump on with, otherwise maybe leave X by the wayside for the moment.
